41. Imaging Cancer Away [Science Frontiers Website]
... Cancer Away "Anna had been given three months to live. The malignant tumor, growing rapidly at the back of her neck, had virtually crippled her. Her upper body was hunched over, her head was forced painfully to one side, and her right arm was contracted and paralyzed. The best thing she could do, said her doctor, was to go home and make arrangements for the future of her young son and daughter." Instead Anna learned how to "image." She conceived the tumor to be a dragon on her back and her white blood cells as knights attacking the dragon with swords. A year later, the tumor had shrunk. Later, it disappeared complete-ly. Can "imaging" work? Obviously, this is a very controversial question. Admittedly, little real scientific research has been done on imaging per se-- it is a bit too radical a concept. But a few scientists are beginning to chart the chemistry and information flow in the mind-body relationship. For example, the death of a spouse has long been ...
42. On The Origin Of Tektites [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 1 (August 1976) Home¦ Issue Contents On The Origin Of Tektites Dwardu Cardona In a previous article, "Tektites and China's Dragon,"(1) I offered some corroborative evidence in support of the notion that tektites might owe their origin to meteoric impacts and/or interplanetary discharges which took place on the Moon during some of the cosmic catastrophes described by Immanuel Velikovsky in Worlds in Collision. Needless to say, the belief in the lunar origin of tektites did not originate with me. Dr. Dean Chapman, aerodynamics specialist at Ames Research Center, among others, had long held that tektites were lunar fragments which had been hurled into space during "meteoric collisions with the moon."(2) So, also, according to J. A. O'Keefe.(3) It was earlier pointed out to me, however, that "any thought of a lunar origin for tektites was dispelled by the manned lunar landings."(4) Among those who had already debunked such a genesis ...

... Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings in Aeon V:3. He claimed that Mewhinney took most of his references out-of-context, especially when referring to Charles' own works, where Mewhinney would often quote an ambiguous statement about the maps in isolation from as many as five supportive statements that accompanied Mewhinney's quotes. Saturday morning, Nancy Owen tried-- with some success-- to teach us how to read Mayan calendars. She passed out copies of 5 pages from the Dresden Codex. The fifth page was a picture-- a dragon across the top, hanging down on the left, breathing fire. The signs for Venus, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter were spread across the top. Beneath the dragon was a Medusa-headed women pouring liquid from an urn. In the liquid were the numbers of a date. The Medusa-headed image was standing on top of a bird with a feathered head-dress, and the bird was on top of a warrior with a bundle of spears. Nancy felt sure that these particular pages were a code intended to show the relationship between the ...
44. The Two Babylons: The Great Red Dragon [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:1 (Jun 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents The Two Babylons: The Great Red Dragon www.piney.com/Hisl71.html From The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop, Chapter 7 First published as a pamphlet in 1853, expanded in 1858: According to the primitive language of mankind, the sun was called "Shemesh"-- that is, "the Servant". [...Thus was the Sun, the Great Fire-god, identified with the Serpent. But he had also a human representative, and that was Tammuz, for whom the daughters of Israel lamented, in other words Nimrod. We have already seen the identity of Nimrod and Zoroaster. Now, Zoroaster was not only the head of the Chaldean Mysteries, but, as all admit, the head of the fire-worshippers.(see note below) The title given to Nimrod, as the first of the Babylonian kings, by Berosus, indicates the same thing. That title is Alorus, that is, "the god of fire." As Nimrod, ...
45. The Thunderbolt in Myth and Symbol [SIS Internet Digest $]
... discharge configurations in the laboratory. The Mythical "Chain of Arrows" This surprising picture emerged only in the past year. In my earlier reconstruction, I had followed the connections between an undulating, upward-spiraling, serpentine form and two powerful mythical motifs --the "chain of arrows" and the "ladder of heaven." Gathered around these motifs in texts and art are numerous other themes, including: backbone of the sky, tower of heaven, flared skirt of the mother goddess, pyramid or steps of ascent, bound serpent or dragon, severed limbs of the serpent or dragon, and more. In the course of assimilating this material, it became clear to me that a simple evolutionary sequence explained the full range of symbolic connections, if one allows for the three-dimensional perspective of an observer on earth. At the heart of this evolutionary sequence is the "chain of arrows" event, a global theme so preposterous as to mock every attempt of comparative mythologists to understand it. In this theme an ancestral warrior or hero launches arrows toward the sky, and ...
46. The Twelfth Planet: by Zecharia Sitchin [Kronos $]
... of the other solar satellites) and has a distendedly elliptical path, with its perihelion in the asteroid belt and its aphelion about twelve times as far away as Pluto. The reason why we do not observe this planet, which the Babylonians called Marduk, is that its period of revolution is 3,600 years- a fact which combines with its planetary number to explain the traditional tenacity of sexagesimal counting. About the time when the solar system developed, Marduk struck the fourth planet, Tiamat (known to ancient Mesopotamians as the dragon of the deep and the mother of the gods), which then orbited between Mars and Jupiter. Half of Tiamat was then shattered to form the asteroids, while the surviving half, which became Earth, was deflected into a new orbit between Venus and Mars. Tiamat's satellite, Kingu (known to the Mesopotamians as the dragon goddess' son and consort), remained gravitationally tied to Earth and is known to us as the Moon. About 450,000 years ago, during our Middle Pleistocene Ice Age, Mesopotamia was ...
47. IGNIS E COELO [Mythopedia Website]
... Mars-god, both of them closely related to the Greek Ares and Heracles, for example [36. It is interesting to learn that Impundulu was also believed to be the servant of death of the supreme being, and that he was greatly feared as a messenger of death. Horus ’ chthonic aspects are conspicuous enough and need hardly mention. As a matter of fact, the mythical Hero is intrinsically related to the phenomena of war, death and the afterlife. In Mexico it was the god Tlaloc who killed a snake or a dragon in the shape of a bird; the dragon functioned as his lightning-weapon [37. The serpent is among the commonest symbols for the lightning [38. This is not to separate the divine bird from the concept of lightning, but only to unite the concepts of the bird and the lightning once more. In fact, the consistent placement of the serpent in the beak of the thunder bird suggests a close link between the beak and the lightning. The lightning comes forth from the beak of the thunder bird, just as ...
48. Mystery of the Cosmic Thunderbolt(1) [Thunderbolts Website]
... is the lion-headed beast Anzu remembered by the Sumerians, Babylonians, and Assyrians --a fierce monster defeated (in various tales) by the Sumerian Ningirsu or the Babylonian Ninurta or Nergal. The warrior confronting Anzu in the above picture is the god Ninurta, wielding in each hand a weapon identified as a "thunderbolt". As for explanations, historians can only offer contradictory guesses. How did the story of a heaven-altering contest find its way into so many cultures? In the ritual of the Babylonian Akitu Festival, the enemy is the dragon Tiamat, subdued by the god Marduk. For the Egyptians it was the dragon Apep, defeated by Ra or his agent Horus. For the Greeks it was the fiery serpents Typhon or Python, vanquished respectively by Zeus and Apollo. Hindu accounts similarly recalled the attack of the sky-darkening serpent Vritra, felled by Indra. But these are only a few of hundreds of such accounts preserved around the world. The story typically begins with the monster's arrival, an event signifying universal catastrophe. A legendary warrior sets out to engage the ...
49. William Comyns Beaumont: Britain's most eccentric and least known Cosmic Heretic [SIS C&C Review $]
... . 15. The Atlantis date (c. 9500 BC) given by Plato had to be shortened. 16. Extensive legendary evidence pictures the 'hairy', 'bearded', 'blazing stars' that were comets. 17. Stonehenge, Avebury Circle and similar monuments were astronomical instruments. 18. Central American legends (and cultures) were contemporaneous with those of the Old World. 19. The intercalary 'five evil days' were cursed because they coincided with a world disaster and the ending of an age. 20. The serpent, dragon, winged-globe, caduceus, and other ancient symbols are traceable to cometary catastrophes. 21. Religious festivals are dated by cometary catastrophes. 22. Cometary conflagrations are the origin of coal deposits. 23. The ancients had a true 360 day year. 24. The planet Venus underwent great changes in color, diameter, figure, and orbit in the time of Ogyges. 25. Quetzalcoatl (Coculkan-Hurakan) commemorated the cometary dragon for the Meso-Americans. Beaumont's theses are almost identical to those of Velikovsky. Yet Beaumont developed and published ...

... Hero". (We take up the most famous Germanic thundergod Thor in pictures to follow.) Gertrude Jobes, a diligent investigator of symbolic themes, affirms that, among the Altaic Tatars, lightning was the "arrow of a mighty hero". A common Slavic name for the weapon of the celestial warrior Perun is strela, "arrow". The Finnish warrior-hero Jumala, is said to have "wielded thunderbolts in the shape of jagged lightning-spears". For the Hindus, it was the great warrior Indra who defeated the dragon Vritra with his thunderbolt. Among the Tibetans and Mongols lightning was the arrow of a dragon-riding god, and thunder was the voice of the dragon. In the same way, the warrior Raiden, in Japanese myth, wielded "fire-arrows"--identified as the thunderbolt --in his battle against the chaos power, Raiju, the "Thunder-beast". Numerous equations of hero's weapon and thunderbolts occur in the Americas as well. Iroquois account tells of a warrior Hé-no, whose name means "thunder". "A monstrous serpent dwelt under ...
